“I have too many coffee mugs,” said no one ever. That’s why they make for the perfect go-to gift. But sometimes gifting *just* a mug can be less than thrilling. Whether it’s a phone case, notepad or their favorite coffee, little extras kick things up a notch and make it a gift worth giving this season. Scroll through to check out our favorite pairings below.


1. I <3 My Cat Mug ($12) + Cat Lady Pin ($10): We’re all shopping for a cat lady this holiday season. When their furry friends are their best friends, a cat lady pin and this “I <3 my cat” mug make for the purrfect gift.


2. Hustle Mug ($18) + #GirlBoss iPhone 6 Case ($40): For the #GirlBoss in your life, you can’t go wrong with a phone case and this mug. After all, they’re probably workaholics who are constantly answering emails on their iPhone, and caffeine is a must to survive the work day.


3. Blogging Day Mug ($16) + Daily Jotter ($16): You probably know at least one blogger by now, and what do bloggers love more than mugs and notepads? Answer: nothing.


4. Coffee Yeah! Mug ($10) + Coffee Beans ($18): For the peeps that must wake up and smell the coffee, opt for the classic gift of a coffee mug and beans. Bonus points if you know their favorite type of coffee.


5. Reindeer Mug Kit ($29) + Spiced Chili Hot Chocolate Mix ($15): But if they’re more of a hot chocolate person, spice things up a bit with chili-flavored hot chocolate mix and this adorable chalkboard mug. Go above and beyond with gingerbread reindeer that they can perch on their mug.


6. May Contain Gin Mug ($19) + Cheers Coasters ($14, set of 12): This set is perfect for your pal that might be sipping on something a *little* stronger than coffee. Take it to the next level by adding their favorite booze to the gift.


7. Literally Cannot Even Mug ($22) + Knit Gloves ($20): Is your friend always cold? Keep their hands toasty with a chic pair of gloves and this mug, because they literally cannot even when it’s below zero out there.


8. Typography Mug ($10) + Take Note Candle ($24): Has your BFF taken up a hand-lettering hobby this year? Wrap up a fun initial mug and this notebook-lined candle for Christmas.


9. The Adventure Begins Mug ($13) + Geometric Succulent Planter ($25): A camp mug is a no-brainer for the outdoorsy type. And if they love the outdoors, chances are their favorite way to decorate is with succulents. You can never have enough succulents.
